Jules Verne and Conan Doyle are fantastic. 'The Hound Of The Baskervilles' is my favourite Sherlock Holmes story. (Yes, Verne is French, not British, however his stuff is still excellent)

An amazing insight into late Victorian middle-class society (and some jolly good laughs) can be found in "Diary of a Nobody" by brothers George & Weedon Grossmith. It was serialised in "Punch" in 1884-1885 and parodies life in a way we can all recognise today.
